|Locals visit in the little cafe/bar at Hostal Casa Ricardo. I enjoyed several |
cafe con leches and nice meals in this cafe.
|This little store truly catered to pilgrims!|
|The beginning of the Hospitales Route|
|Sometimes the pilgrim gets plenty |
of direction, like in this case where
three arrows point the way! I guess
they are just making sure...
|At the top of the pass,|
you have the
opportunity to hire
a taxi to take you down!
|Near the end of the day, I came upon this ridge of wind turbines. From my experience of the wind, it is a good location for them. There is a large power plant below them, and the blades were churning out the electricity!|
|As I approached the final very-steep-and-rocky downhill portion of the day, I came |
to a point where I had to cross this road. Yes, indeed, the route took me between these guardrails. I briefly wondered if this is how they reduce the number of pilgrims completing the Primitivo!
|Flor and her daughter August were a sight for sore eyes as I dragged myself into the albergue. This photo was taken the next morning when were were all fresh and ready for another day on the trail!|
